Our Strategy for the future

Our strategic goals represent our five year strategic plan.

We have developed and refined them alongside people with MND, our trustees, our volunteers, health and social care professionals, the research community, our members and staff.

Our goals

Goal 1: Advancing research

We will be a leading international contributor in identifying the causes of MND and understanding how it progresses. We will support the research community in turning this new knowledge into potential treatments and ultimately a cure.

Goal 2: Ensuring quality health and care

We will do all we can to ensure that people with MND, their carers and families can access the care, support and information they need, when and where they need it, reflecting their diverse needs.

Goal 3: Strengthening professionals’ ability to treat and care for people affected by MND

We will better understand the disease and clinical progression of MND. We will facilitate the sharing of knowledge, data and resources to improve outcomes relating to people’s diagnosis, prognosis and treatment.

Goal 4: Working together

We will achieve more for people with MND, their carers and families by working in partnership and collaboration with other organisations, and by being a credible and effective operator in the external environment.

Goal 5: Raising awareness

We will increase awareness and understanding of MND and raise the profile of the work of the Association to influence decision-makers and reduce the social isolation so often experienced by people with MND.

Goal 6: The difference we make

We will continue to affirm our place as the leading authority on MND by growing the MND community – that is, all those who share our vision – and continually improving how we run our organisation.
